A new world of
dental safety and efficiency
LM Dental Tracking System™ enables tracking and monitoring of instruments and materials from all different manufacturers. It allows you to turn vital information into action that makes a difference.
Tagging solutions with intelligent technology
Instruments and materials at the dental clinic can be identified and connected to LM Dental Tracking System™ if they either have an integrated tag or are tagged with an external tag that is readable by an LM DTS™ Reader.
Compatibility across manufacturers
Also, other manufacturer instruments and materials can be connected to the system via advanced RFID tags, integrating all dental materials in the clinic for tracking with LM DTS™ scanning readers.
An RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) system consists of three components: a scanning antenna and transceiver (often combined into one reader, also known as an interrogator) and a transponder, the RFID tag. An RFID tag consists of a microchip, memory and antenna. The microchip contains electronically stored information which is activated with a reader.
Unlike a barcode, the tag does not need to be within the line of sight of the reader, so it may be embedded in the tracked object. With RFID, many items can also be identified simultaneously and from a distance.
No. LM™ have integrated RFID chips that are guaranteed to work with LM DTS™. However, LM™ offers you the possibility to retrotag your current instruments other non-LM™ assets to make them compatible with LM DTS™. You can conveniently get retrotag kits and materials from your LM-Dental dealer. Other assets, like materials and consumables you can tag with LM DTS™ stickers. Or if you prefer, you can create your own retrotag solution or contact 3rd party sticker providers and use them with LM DTS™.
Yes. They are specially designed for hundreds of sterilization cycles. Please, see the biocompatibility, endurability and sterilizability report.
LM™ instruments with an integrated tag
Tagged LM-ErgoSense® handle
The LM-ErgoSense® hand instrument is truly a unique combination of ergonomic design and advanced technology. All the LM-ErgoSense® instruments are available with an integrated RFID chip, enabling complete and reliable traceability by LM DTS™ scanning readers. Tagged LM-ErgoSense® instruments can be autoclaved and sterilized – just like any other LM™ hand instrument.
LM™ extraction instruments with tagged option
All the LM™ extraction instruments – LM-LiftOut™, LM-SlimLift™, LM-TwistOut™ and LM-RootOut™ – are also available with an integrated RFID chip for reliable tracking via LM DTS™ scanning readers.
LM-Servo™ E hand instrument cassette for improved safety
LM-Servo™ E cassette series provides a great combination of safety, hygiene, and new technology. Its easy-to-use and functional design with safety shields prevents sharp prick injuries and protects the instrument tips.
Advanced RFID readers for smart data reading
LM Dental Tracking System™ Readers collect data from dental instruments and materials and send it to a cloud server for analysis. They notify users of errors, such as missing instruments and/or unsterilized instruments, expired materials and also indicate if any sharpening and/or maintenance is required for instruments.
The LM DTS™ Readers are available in three different formats:
LM DTS™ Tray Reader
With the antenna, cables and reader enclosed in a single tabletop tray, LM DTS™ Tray Reader can be placed in any environment with minimal effect on its surroundings. Depending on the requirements, it can be configured to support single or multiple activities. Instruments, handpieces, filling materials, implants etc from different manufacturers are wirelessly read in a few seconds.
LM DTS™ Unit Reader
LM DTS™ Unit Reader is a cutting-edge single UHF RFID read-point solution that can be mounted anywhere in the clinical area due to its compact size.
LM DTS™ Cabinet
The latest innovation, LM DTS™ Cabinet can be used for secure storing and scanning dental materials. Material packages are read and monitored when placing or withdrawing, using the same UHF RFID technology of other LM DTS™ scanning reader.
Track and analyze via the cloud
LM DTS™ Cloud Server database analyzes and tracks instruments. It provides easy analytical reports about the items and activity cycles registered in the system. Data can be used for improving clinic management and documentation. Most importantly, it can increase cost efficiency and patient safety.
The complete history of the specific instrument is also documented, including information about when it was autoclaved and by whom.Bo Danielsen, Head of the School of Oral Health Care, University of Copenhagen
Data for smart and efficient operations
The LM Dental Tracking System™ cloud server is a comprehensive database managing the material flows and activities of all items identified with an RFID tag within dental clinics, CSSDs, and laboratories. It’s used to record, track and verify the activity cycles from storage to maintenance through clinic and patient care.
The software provides easy analytical reports about the items and activity cycles registered in the system. Data can improve and ease asset management and documentation, and most importantly, increase cost efficiency and patient safety.
